Dublin Bikes

Dublin bikes are a great way to get around the small city of Dublin. Sign up to Dublinbikes and get the first 30 mins free. This is ample time to get to most places, but if you'd like to hold onto the bike a little longer be aware of the hourly rates. The website is difficult to navigate so I'll give you a brief outline of the sign-up process.

3 day ticket

Cost: €5, guarantee of €150 is required

How to sign up: A 3 day ticket can be purchased from any of the Dublin Bike credit card terminals. See list below.  [Please note that Laser Maestro, VISA Electron debit card and cash are not accepted].

Consult the terminal menu to obtain a short-term ticket that you will need to keep throughout the period covered by your subscription. This card contains an ID which you will need to enter each time you hire a bike, in addition to a PIN selected by you. It is important that you keep your ticket in the event that any issue may arise.

Basically, get your bike card, keep it and remember your pin for the 3 day period.
